For Sale: 1966 Ford Mustang in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

If you're looking for your first collector car, affordable sunny weather transportation, or just have a soft spot for vintage ponies, this 1966 Ford Mustang coupe is a great choice. It's not a show car, it's not a pedigreed car that you should buy as 'put-away' investment, it's just a super-solid, dialed-in little coupe with 289 V8 power, an automatic transmission, a period-correct presentation, and the same charm that's infused into every early Mustang ever built. And by all accounts, that's very much a good thing.

Not long ago, this beautiful vintage Mustang got a fresh coat of Code M Wimbledon White paint, which we feel is an excellent choice on a low-key Mustang. Infinitely more interesting that Colonial White, the off-white shade has elegance that's universally loved by all Ford fans, and it looks great covering the iconic lines of Americas' greatest pony. GT-style stripes between the wheels work perfectly with black vinyl roof, adding both sportiness and sophistication to the juvenile coupe, while breaking up what would otherwise be a bit of a dull car. It looks a bit more aggressive than many of its contemporaries, aided by the GT-style grille and fog lights up front and the chrome 'gills' in the rear quarters - separating this '66 from your old girlfriend's High School car. They did a good job on the top driver-quality paint by highlighting the deep shine and minimizing any potential orange peel in the modern urethane finish, and with only a handful of minor imperfections to speak of the curb appeal is off-the-charts. Not perfect, mind you, but certainly good enough to get thumbs-up gestures in traffic but not so nice that a full parking lot scares you into going home. Panel fit is actually pretty good as well, particularly the trunk and the bumpers, which hug the body tightly (they were never aligned perfectly even when new), and thanks to the Mustang's huge popularity, much of the trim is newer so it looks very good. It's actually kind of refreshing to see an early Mustang that isn't trying to be anything other than what it is: fun V8-powered transportation.

The Mustang's interior is always a friendly, welcoming place, and this one is no different. It's got the light patina of a set of comfortable old jeans and that's perfectly OK with us. It's possible that most of the interior is original, particularly the carpets which are showing some age, but there's nothing that needs immediate attention (aside from maybe the driver's seat bottom, which is in danger of getting worse) and you shouldn't hesitate to get in and have fun right off the bat. The five-dial gauge panel became standard in 1966 and holds a pretty complete set of gauges in a black "camera case" finished panel and the stock steering wheel really does look sporty. A JVC AM/FM/Cassette stereo head unit fits neatly in the original radio's location and powers a pair of modern speakers on the rear package shelf, so you don't have to sacrifice entertainment in your new daily-driver vintage Mustang. There's also an under-dash factory A/C unit ahead of the center console, although the system is blowing warm and will need service. The trunk shows off just how thorough the paint job was and sports reproduction mats for the floor and spare tire.

This is a real-deal C-code Mustang, which means a 289 cubic inch V8 under the hood. As a result, this Mustang is plenty peppy around town and has a great V8 sound from the twin tailpipes out back, both critical elements to Mustang ownership. The engine sports a few performance upgrades, including an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, a Ford Blue intake, an open-element air cleaner, plus a set of Cobra finned valve covers to make it look racy. The recently rebuilt C4 3-speed automatic transmission is a willing partner for the V8 and never leaves you hanging for a downshift and the 8-inch rear end has highway gears in it so cruising around town or across the country is pretty drama-free. Recent maintenance/service and a new front end underneath means this Mustang is ready to go right now, and by the looks of the otherwise largely original and remarkably tidy undercarriage, this Pony has always lived easy. The rolling stock consists of Mustang Mag wheels wrapped in 205/70/14 BFGoodrich redline tires, finishing off the look perfectly.

This is just a nice little Mustang that's going to be affordable to own and operate and will always bring a smile to your face when you're behind the wheel. And really, is there more to ask from a classic car? Call today!
